Kate and Joel are high-school sweethearts. They both met at and attended Geelong College together. I think I heard it right when they said that they had their first kiss when Kate was in year 9?! It seemed only fitting that Kate and Joel return to where it all started. They were married on the grounds of their old school in an area called “The Cloisters.” It was incredibly incredibly stunning! (One of the most beautiful settings I’ve seen any couple get married in!). After the ceremony the guests were treated to drinks on the lawn while we went and made the most of the beautiful school grounds… imagine- huge ivy covered walls, beautiful red bricks, long wooden hallways. It was amazing!
After the ceremony was finished we headed to Clyde Park, a lovely, picturesque winery just out of Geelong. We took some more photos in the valley and then headed inside for the incredible food!
I think one of my favourite moments of the day was just after Kate had walked down the isle. Watching Joel take sneak peeks of Kate as they stood opposite each other (as their chaplain prayed for them) was simply beautiful and if you look closely below, you will see it!
Congratulations Kate and Joel! It was a tremendous joy sharing in your day.
